  • Acts as a comprehensive guide and practical tool for architects, engineers and technicians operating in the field of energy and environmental retrofit of buildings
  • Includes a 45 point check-list for the field survey and about 120 technical sheets of possible energy retrofit actions that can be applied to the existing buildings

Energy audits have multiple goals including reducing energy consumption, managing costs and environmental impact. Improving the energy performance of existing buildings through energy retrofit measures is a great opportunity for developing sustainability in our structures and developing a green building economy. Green Energy Audit of Buildings considers this opportunity with a new and modern interpretation of the classic methodologies.
